Liverpool name Irish tour party


May 10, 1962
Liverpool will be taking 14 players to Ireland on Sunday for a short tour of about five days, during which they will play Bohemians in Dublin and Limerick at Limerick.

The party will include the regular side which played Everton on Tuesday night, plus Dick White and the 17-years-old former Liverpool schoolboy Tommy Smith. One other player will be named later.

Roger Hunt will not be going as he will be reporting in London next week with England’s team for the World Cup in Chile.
